Natural Knickknacks

Your mom is wild about nature and has an eco-friendly spirit. So let the great outdoors inspire her Mother’s Day gift. Give her a pair of hiking shoes or a new perennial to plant in her garden. You could even plan a weekend lakeside or hiking trip. If she's daring Best Events can arrange for her to go water sphering!

There are also boatloads of gifts of the homemade variety that your nature-loving mom would adore: Try making a bouquet of photo flowers, a a hand-painted vase or recycled flower pot.

Best Events can also arrange for a one-off art class.

The Finer Things in Life

Your mom loves to be pampered, especially on Mother’s Day. A gift certificate to her favorite spa or a personal fashion showcase at home would be perfect gifts. And she’d surely love a trendy new handbag or killer shoes. Best Events can arrange this for you!

If you’d rather make her something yourself, try some homemade soap, a cute bath salts container, a no-sew make up bag or a jeweled candle holder.

For moms who enjoy dancing, we can arrange for a one-off salsa class for just her and the family.

Practical Present

Your mom is a neat, organized, practical person so only a down-to-earth gift will do. She loves thoughtful gifts that she can use everyday, like a family planner or a picture frame for one of the many photos around the house.

If you’re thinking about a gift certificate, try one from her favorite housewares boutique or garden center. Or you could even make her a personalized memo pad she can use for making all her to do lists or a utensil holder to help corral all her kitchen utensils.

Why not give her a break from cooking and hire a personal chef from Best Events to cook a family lunch?

Decadent Delight

There’s no doubt about it. The way to your mom’s heart is through her stomach! A big box of chocolates (she doesn’t have to share) is a great gift idea for your momma.
Best Events can even arrange for a Chocolate tasting workshop just for her and family members!

If she also likes to cook, you could get her a high quality cast iron pan or set of exotic spices. And she’d be delighted with a handmade recipe card box to store all your family’s favorite recipes.

No matter the gift, be sure to let mom sit back and relax.

Happy Mother’s Day!
